The six main control levers and four switch levers on the GF-TQ6 can all be removed and/or replaced so that you can realistically model the operation of throttle and other controls found in many types of aircraft.
For example, GoFlight offers an optional turboprop lever set including two power levers, two prop pitch
levers, and two mixture control levers that can be installed into the handle bases of the GF-TQ6. GoFlight also plans to offer additional lever and detent plate sets for your GF-TQ6 in the near future.
To reconfigure the control levers, follow these steps:
- Disconnect the GF-TQ6 from your computer. You can disconnect either end of the USB cable, whichever happens to be most convenient.
- If you plan to remove any of the four switch levers, first slide the switch lever(s) fully forward, then slide the associated main control lever(s) fully back. With the levers in this position, you can easily remove and insert the appropriate lever into its base with a firm straight motion upward along an imaginary line extending from the base mounting fixture. If you plan to remove any of the six main control levers, slide these levers to the full
- If you plan to operate the GF-TQ6 without a control lever at any of these locations (e.g., a twin- jet configuration), lever bases without handles can be left “parked” in the full forward position, making it easier and more convenient to later re-install a lever.
- Re-connect the GF-TQ6 to your computer.
